Acknowledging the shortcomings and weaknesses of the industry, the quality of education is still low compared to the requirements of socio-economic development, but the drafting committee recommends maintaining the 12-year general education system like most countries.

Thus, after 2015, the education sector will only choose a number of basic, practical, and close-to-life subjects to build capacity and help students solve problems and situations in daily life.
